SKROGG / Press

“Near as I can tell, New Hampshire trio Skrogg only played four songs but man, that set was full. Low end permeated guitar and bass alike, and drummer Felix Starr had a floor tom mounted as his rack for extra thunder to stand up to Reverend Maxfield and Jasper Gloom. Maxfield delivered classic-rock-style lyrics with a dudely burl that seemed less like a put-on than some I’ve heard. Helps the authenticity cause that he spoke the same way.The two newer songs were both longer and more expansive instrumentally than the EP material, the first a wide-berth blues number and the second blending familiarly thickened fuzz into a twisted biker metal groove. They brought their own crowd to go with that already present at the El ‘n’ Gee, and I’d gladly wager that when Skrogg plays locally in New Hampshire, it’s a fucking rager of a party. This is one of those bands who are just too dead on to not get picked up by some label sooner or later.”

J.J. Koczan - The Obelisk

“Sounding like a mish-mash of Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Clutch, the band is straight- forward, no-frills 70's influenced hard rock topped off with raw, dirty vocals and they sound like they are having a lot of fun doing it.”

Ed Barnard - Doommantia

“We've just passed the winter solstice and I'm hoping against hope that Santa soon leaves me a bottle of Buffalo Trace under the tree. If he doesn't, I'll just crank Skrogg's Raw Heat and sweat 'til I stink. The EP gives listeners five chances to sneak out of that lame-ass Christmas gathering to steal your neighbor's car, trash a hotel room, or just spill double-fisted libations all over the shag carpeting you can't stand anyway. You don't want your kids to see you listening to Skrogg. Straight outta hell by way of New Hampshire, this doomy-blues trio has a sound that's thickly bearded, whiskey-soaked, and strangely southern.”

Seth Grennan - Heavy Planet

“From the state that brought forth the slogan “Live Free or Die,” a mountain shaped like an old man’s face, Laconia Bike Week and Scissorfight come the burly grooves of Skrogg.”

H.p. Taskmaster - The Obelisk

“It’s just great fucking gritty hard rock tinged with doom and blues. It’s fuzzy, and it’s huge.”
